INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) noted that Indonesia's economy in the second quarter of 2017 grew 5.01 percent (year on year), said BPS Head Suhariyanto in a press conference in Jakarta on Monday (07/08/2017)
Thus, he said, cumulatively, economic growth in the first half of 2017 reached 5.01 percent.
"Still below expectations, but 5.01 percent is pretty good, although the global economy is still covered with uncertainty and commodity prices have not improved," said Suhariyanto.
